Copycat by Alex Lake

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Imitation is the most terrifying form of flattery…

Which Sarah Havenant is you?

When an old friend gets in touch, Sarah Havenant discovers that there are two Facebook profiles in her name. One is hers. The other, she has never seen.

But everything in it is accurate. Photos of her friends, her husband, her kids. Photos from the day before. Photos of her new kitchen. Photos taken inside her house.

And this is just the beginning. Because whoever has set up the second profile has been waiting for Sarah to find it. And now that she has, her life will no longer be her own…

Good pace and tension in this book which I read in two sittings.

Intriguing opening of the main character Sarah Havenant discovering that she has two Facebook accounts, one she has posted herself and another account created by someone else. This someone else knows all about her, has pictures of her family, knows her every move and then things take on an even more sinister tone when she begins to be controlled by her other 'self'.

Whoever has set this account up wants her to find it and wants her to know they are controlling her life now. This other person manages to make all those around Sarah believe she is going mad, losing her mind, even her husband Ben believes she is ill until eventually she starts to doubt her own sanity.

Well put together with enough smokescreens to prevent you from guessing too early who is behind it all. A good read and worthy of 3 stars.

I would like to thank the publisher for sending this in exchange for an honest review.
